"We reached out to Kerry because we needed to develop an extended shelf life solution for our breads. Kerry worked with us in a spirit of transparency, on the bench, focusing on our unique business needs. 

Working with Kerry, we learned how the enzymes worked with the emulsifiers and felt as if we were co-designing our own solution. We are pleased with the results and are currently working on a natural shelf life preservation system for our new line of natural breads."
